Moments later, they are attacked by several of Skoll's forces, but are able to quickly dispatch them. Fearing that Skoll will acquire the coordinates to Thrawn's location, Ahsoka and Wren head to his base but are intercepted by Hati and Marrok. Ahsoka kills Marrok and continues on alone, while Wren stays behind to hold off Hati, who realizes that Wren cannot wield the Force. Ahsoka reaches Skoll and the two engage in a duel. Ahsoka is able to retrieve the map, but she tosses it aside after it burns her hand. Skoll overpowers and sends Ahsoka plummeting into the ocean as Wren watches in horror. Wren then holds the map at gunpoint, but Skoll verbally manipulates her into handing it over by promising her that she will see Bridger again. After Thrawn's location is revealed, Skoll destroys the map and boards the Eye of Sion with Hati and Wren as their prisoner. A squadron of New Republic fighters, led by Syndulla, arrives at Seatos and tries to stop the freighter from jumping into hyperspace, but fails to do so. Meanwhile, Ahsoka awakens in the "World Between Worlds", where she is seemingly reunited with her former Master.

JOIN US ON PATREON: patreon.com/ivebeenmeaningtowatch In this episode of I've Been Meaning to Watch That, Jocelyn, AKA Joc's Watchlist, talks about Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story. "Hi, everyone! I'm Jocelyn, also known as Joc's Watch List on TikTok and Instagram. I talk about TV shows and movies, review them, and give recommendations. I also share a daily TV show guide, so if you're ever running out of things to watch, come follow me!" First things first: in the Can't Wait to Watch segment, we talk about the upcoming DC movie, Blue Beetle, in the shadow of recent DC drama. We're hoping that Blue Beetle will break the trend of DC's underperforming releases when it comes out in August. We also get into Warner Brothers' new plan to license HBO original series to Netflix. Is this a bad idea? What does it mean for the HBO-exclusive series? Is Netflix's “One Home Per Account” plan worth it? Is it time to cancel our subscriptions? Which streaming platform should we pick? Does Peacock offer good value? Hear our thoughts on Atlanta Housewives, our predictions for the upcoming Challengers movie after watching the trailer, the next seasons of Euphoria, our beef with HBO's The Idol, and other shows that we enjoyed – including The Sex Lives of College Girls, Never Have I Ever, Mr. Malcolm's List, and we reminisce about old shows. Then, we get into the main topic of the show: Queen Charlotte. How many episodes should it have had? We're not too surprised at the show's success, because, let's be honest, it's Shonda Rhimes, and the actors were also incredible. We're glad that Bridgerton is introducing black characters into period dramas, but should Julia Quinn be making money from the diversity in the shows? We look at how Queen Charlotte's priorities have changed as she aged, we try to piece together what the other characters' lives would've looked like if the show had been longer, and we try to imagine Queen Charlotte's origin story. In the final segment, Watchlist, we go through the shows that we're excited about and our recommendations. Timestamps [00:28] A bit about Joc's Watchlist. [01:09] Can't wait to watch: Blue Beetle.

This week on On Story, we're joined by Lang Fisher for a conversation on her process of co-creating, writing, and showrunning Netflix's hit series, Never Have I Ever. Fisher has a long history of writing and producing funny yet intelligent television, and Never Have I Ever is no exception. This fresh, coming-of-age series follows Indian-American teen, Davy Vishwakumar, who after a difficult year, is determined to heighten her social status at Sherman Oaks High Schools. Both co-created with and inspired by Mindy Kaling's own childhood, the show's current three seasons are a remarkable masterclass on witty dialogue, a leader in diverse representation on screen, and adept at presenting relatable themes for teens and adults alike. The show's highly anticipated fourth and final season is scheduled to be released by Netflix on June 8th, 2023. Prior to her work on Never Have I Ever, Fisher was a writer-producer for many comedy series, including Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Mindy Project, and the final season of 30 Rock, where she co-wrote the episode “A Goon's Deed in a Weary World,” which was named one of Variety's “25 Best TV Episodes of the Decade.” Before venturing into television writing, Fisher used her humor to write for six years at the satirical news outlet, The Onion. AFF moderator Casey Baron sat down with Lang Fisher to dive deeper into the process of writing and creating Never Have I Ever and to give our audience a craft conversation. Never have you ever learned so much on the art of comedy writing! Clips of Never Have I Ever courtesy of Netflix.
What do we lose as a society when we only experience a person, a group of people, or an entire culture through their pain or losses—not their joys, successes, or humor?Alli Frank and Asha Youmans are multi-published authors, novelists, and former educators who use humor, joy, and compassion to write stories that encourage candid conversations about issues such as race, religion, culture, class, privilege, parenting, and education. Alli and Asha found "literary soulmates" in each other after working together as a teacher and a school administrator in Seattle, Washington. That's when they discovered their shared mission as educators and as authors.Alli, who is white and Jewish, and Asha, who is Black and Baptist, bring their very different cultural backgrounds and perspectives together to write in one seamless, cohesive voice, united in their belief that humor and fiction can inspire empathy and learning, and that exposure to diverse experiences can only enrich one's life. Their latest novel, The Better Half, was named an Entertainment Weekly Best Book of Summer, and an AARP Hot Summer Read in 2023. It is published by comedian, actor, and producer Mindy Kaling's publishing imprint under Amazon, Mindy's Book Studio.How Mindy Kaling fell in love with Alli's and Asha's women-centered storiesThe importance of telling peoples' stories through more than their suffering and strugglesHow joy, wit, and humor can open people up to being more receptive to unfamiliar cultural experiences or identitiesWant to get in touch?

AHHHH This episode!!! You guys!!! MEG IS INCREDIBLE. A HUMAN I AM OBSESSED WITH. Meg Calvin is a writing and marketing coach who helps writers do the deep spiritual work to create their Amazon bestselling books. After 15+ years as a minister, Meg began serving nonfiction and memoir writers who are fellow (as she refers to them) Spiritually-Attuned Go-Getters back in 2020.Through her intuitive gifts, time-tested writing and marketing techniques, and, at times, unconventional practices, she guides writers in forever unblocking those deep subconscious blocks around their identity, their time, their unique writing style, monetizing and marketing their book, and their book's target audience--just to name a few. I'm also obsessed with her because she's F*CKIN' hilarious. She is a real one.. loves Documentary Now (IYKYK), ribeye steak, Mindy Kaling, pure comedy and life's pleasures.

Maitreyi Ramakrishnan never had a part-time job. She never worked retail, or had an after-school job in food service. The story of her actual first job is well known: she submitted a tape to Mindy Kaling's open casting call for the series Never Have I Ever. She beat out 15,000 other applicants for the role, and has delivered a memorable, comedic, and authentic performance over the show's last four seasons as Devi, the feisty, awkward and determined nerd—with aspirations of being popular. Devi was no stranger to making a reckless decision for the sake of good grades or chasing a boy. Avery and Maitreyi chat about how her high school experience in Mississauga, Canada, (close to where Avery is from) was very different from Devi's, the importance of having a tight inner circle to keep you grounded and her biggest lessons from Never Have I Ever as the show comes to an end. Plus, Maitreyi opens up about the difficulties of making friends as an adult, and the boundaries she's had to put up to protect herself from being used for her fame.

“Everybody can learn to reinvent whatever it is you want to do. You just have to learn how to go about it.”Gendered ageism is the intersection of age and gender bias in the workplace. This is a growing concern for professional women. I talk to so many women about wanting to reinvent themselves and start a new career or get a new job.

In today's episode, I'm exploring Mindy Kaling's body transformation and society's reaction to women's weight loss.I delve into Mindy Kaling's recent interview with People Magazine, where she candidly discusses her body transformation and health routine. Unfortunately, her weight loss has sparked controversy and allegations surrounding the use of Ozempic, raising doubts about the authenticity of her journey.I share my thoughts on society's tendency to scrutinize and question women's weight loss, highlighting the unfair double standards compared to men. Why do we get so "triggered" by others' bodies, especially when it comes to women's bodies???I also stumbled upon a post on Instagram about child-free flights being offered by WestJet and possibly other airlines. The comments section was a mixed bag of opinions. I'm sharing my own perspectives on the idea of child-free flights.Support the showInterested in working together?

A few weeks ago the news broke that Taylor Swift had broken up with long term partner, Joe Alwyn...not long after, the rumour mill was spinning stories of a multitude of men Taylor was apparently dating, one being lead singer of the 1975, Matty Healey. Taylor Swift is one of a string of celebrities who we can't seem to allow to just be single. Jennifer Anniston, Emma Watson, Mindy Kaling, just to name a few. We are constantly monitoring these ladies to see if they have finally paired off in a way that suits us. In this episode of The Quicky, we look at why there are certain stars we just can't accept being single and why people are so invested in the romantic lives of Hollywood.

Today's guest Lisa Sadoughi is the founder and creative director of Lele Sadoughi. Lisa “Lele” Sadoughi started her namesake brand as a jewelry line in 2012. Over time, her eponymous brand has expanded into other categories and become the ultimate accessories destination. Some even call her “The Headband Queen.” Sadoughi covered a lot of ground in the world of fashion accessories before launching her own business. For many years, she oversaw the designs of trims and patternmaking at Rebecca Taylor, where her love for detail in hardware and adorning clothing was born. She also worked at Tory Burch, Club Monaco, and Banana Republic. In 2006, Sadoughi launched J.Crew's first-ever jewelry collection and grew the business significantly over the next five years. After her success at J.Crew, Sadoughi held the jewelry design director position at Tory Burch and began her namesake jewelry company. The company has grown with the support of more than 150 global retailers and countless female leaders, such as Kate Middleton, Lady Gaga, Nicole Kidman, Mindy Kaling, and Naomi Campbell.

On the show today… The trailer for this season's three-part Vanderpump Rules reunion has just dropped, and it's even more chaotic than fans were expecting. Here's exactly what you need to know. And this week, Mindy Kaling gave an interview to People magazine, with an accompanying photoshoot, to celebrate her new swimwear line. In the interview, she referenced the changes to her body and her words were immediately met with a flood of comments calling her a liar. Now we need to discuss the unspoken reason why this is making us uncomfortable, the underlying fatphobia at play, and why women like Mindy and Hilary Duff are in an impossible situation. Plus, it's Weekend Watch time! This week we have two new movies to recommend to you, starring two of our favourite actresses. A high-stakes action drama and a beautifully told story of resilience.

IndieWire Senior TV Writer Proma Khosla joined me for this week's Yellowjackets recap for Season 2 Episode 6: Qui. We enhanced our vocabularies, fangirled over Lisa, the 14th Gilly, and Sophie Nelisse's acting, decided that Akilah makes a much better plastic surgeon than OB/GYN, and indulged in the usual obsessive theorizing. Why aren't they eating Ben yet? And why have we not yet seen petite Christina Ricci punching someone with brass knuckles yet?? Proma Khosla is a Senior TV Writer based in New York City, where she covers all things TV and streaming. She is IndieWire's resident Marvel and Star Wars correspondent ( “Ms. Marvel” and “Andor” supremacy!), and a tireless advocate of a little show called “Yellowjackets.” She strives to cover everything with equal expertise and detail, whether it's the latest wave of Mindy Kaling discourse or the chaotic life choices of characters on “Emily in Paris” or just shoehorning a ”Lost” reference into any kind of article. Before IndieWire, Proma was a Senior TV Reporter at Mashable, where she started her ongoing coverage of South Asian representation in Hollywood (especially when it comes to dance). Her work has also appeared in Vanity Fair, Teen Vogue, Decider, Glamour, and Brown Girl Magazine. After graduating from the University of Michigan with a B.A. in Communications, Proma worked on film sets including the horror-indie “It Follows” and with Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan. In 2017 she launched Lion Party Films, where she produces stories by and for the South Asian diaspora with co-founder Raashi Desai.

We read some new quotes from Carmine Appice dealing with the Motley Crue drama then recall comments from Jennifer Aniston and Mindy Kaling about if their sitcoms could be made today.
